Question about 2000 Volkswagen Golf
A common problem with the golf hatchback is where the cables run thru from the car to the tailgate they pass thru a rubber boot surround by the hinges. because the bootlid is open and closed many times the wires that control items on the tailgate can break.
take off the rubber boot from one side where it fits to the car and slide it back over the cables that are inside it and if you see some cables are broken that is your problem.rejoin the cables and it should be ok.this is something to check after you know that the switch is ok, it is quite a common problem. hope this helps.

I just tried this and it worked perfect, its the brown cable on the left hand side. It was broken when i peeled back the rubber joint thing. I attached a wire between the two ends and hey presto it worked perfectly. Thanks to the original poster!
